The lunacy continues...or possibly not
Who's stupid idea was it to try to ride in offroad this morning? I set off with good intentions but after 15mins of slipping and sinking in the snow I turned back and picked up the road bike. Snow had been packed down a little by walkers but was very uneven so difficult to hold a line and I was still sinking into it making it very hard going. Road wasn't too bad, with snow/slush in the bike lanes I was being careful going a bit slower than usual in the middle of the lane, the snow along the centre meant very few chances for cars to overtake but most drivers were patient. Bit iffy in city centre again as it seems the council cannot keep the roads there clear. Must try harder!
